Last August, a few of us decided to meet up for a few pints the night before we faced Kerry in the All-Ireland semi-final. In doing so, an open invite to other like-minded souls was issued from here on the site. We gathered in Bowe’s pub on Fleet Street in the centre of town for the event and it turned out to be an enjoyable evening (well, I thought so at any rate) even if the result the following day went against us.
We have, of course, another big Croke Park match facing us this coming Sunday and so, having canvassed opinion on the matter, I’m happy to announce that another one of these events – also at Bowe’s (which is here) – has now been fixed for this coming Saturday night, with throw-in around 9pm or a bit after. If you’re at a loose end that evening and fancy engaging in some pre-match Mayo GAA chatter over a few beers, then this could be as good a place place as any to do it.
